Today, we had the opportunity to visit our buddies’ “Cool Tool Museum.” Mr. Matthew, our docent for the day, welcomed us warmly and provided a bit of background on the process of developing the display. Our buddies tinkered with tools, sorted sundry samples, planned on paper, created with clay, analyzed the “art” of an architect, meandered to the national museum in the making, and prepared for presentation. Our buddies gave us a grand tour and shared about their work. Afterwards, we sat down and shared some tool-related texts.
As we continue to explore our central idea of structure, we sought to make connections. We are grateful to our buddies for expanding our ideas of structure to include the structural design of the tools themselves and the structure of their display.
